She shrugged it off and smiled at the granny before helping her with the claw machine. Surprisingly, she did not know why and how, but she managed to catch a doll.
Ecstatic, the granny hugged the doll as though she was hugging a child. She then handed the rest of her coins over to Rong Mo.
While her success rate wasn’t 100%, she still managed to catch a dozen or so dolls for the granny.
Unable to contain her smiles, the old granny distributed those dolls to the rowdy kids, leaving the largest one for Rong Mo.
All smiles, she even invited Rong Mo to her place in the future.
Now that the granny was gone, she sat down where she was initially and looked at the doll in her hands. Rubbing her belly, she felt as though she could die from hunger at any moment.
But, where was she to find food from? Could the doll in her hands be exchanged for money?
Raising her head painfully, she realized that the granny who had left earlier on was standing right before her again, looking at her with a terrible and worried expression, “Child, what’s wrong?”
“I’m… hungry…” Finally, she spoke. It was as though this was the first time she had said something since she was awakened.
“Hungry?” The granny was evidently shaken. What day and age were they in right now? How could someone be this hungry?
Beckoning for one of the rowdy kids from earlier on, she gave him a little money and tasked him to purchase a loaf of bread and a bottle of water.
Rong Mo ate with such haste that she nearly choked.
The granny opened the bottle of water and handed it to her. “Child, take it easy!” She looked at her with tenderness and asked. “Where is your family? Why have they not fed you and caused you to be starving as such?”
It was probably due to the granny’s old age that Rong Mo felt she could trust this person, and hence, she related her difficulties and predicament. “I don’t know who I am.”
The granny was shocked as she glared at her for a long time before eventually speaking up, “Do you know what your name is?”
“Mo… Mo… This seems to be my name, but I can’t be sure either.” She was not certain if that was her name or surname. If the man that was taking care of her was a bad person, there was a high chance that her surname was Mo or Mu, and that it wasn’t her name.
“Momo,” When she heard that name, granny smiled out. “My grandson’s called Momo as well.”
She then caressed Rong Mo’s head tenderly. “You really look as cute as my grandson when he was younger. Child, since you don’t know who you are for the time being, why not come back home with me and stay at my place for now?”
“I don’t know who I am but I know that those people seem to want to harm me. I’m afraid I might bring trouble for you,” She could sense that this granny seemed to be true and sincere. And that was precisely the case why Rong Mo did not wish to follow her—she did not want to bring her harm.
“Don’t worry about that. I’m not someone that’s so easily taken down.”
Because she truly had nowhere else she could head to, she followed granny back.
Granny’s surname was Rong, and after staying with granny, she decided to take on that surname too.
For her Mo character, she chose one that meant solitude. After all, it befitted her current situation and how foreign everything was to her.
For the time being, she was called Rong Mo.
As for everyone else, granny told them that she was her dear grandson. Even though Rong Mo did not know who granny was, given the grandeur of her mansion, she garnered that this should be a somebody.
At the same time, Rong Mo did not reveal everything and tell granny that she was a girl. Later on, just as she was about to confess her gender to granny, the granny’s grandson returned.
